Changes to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service

Have your say on the development of a new Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)

We are currently developing a new CAMHS service which will ‘go live’ on 1 April 2018. This new service needs to make a real difference to children and young people who are experiencing mental health problems in Wiltshire. We aim to develop the service by working in close partnership with colleagues in education, health and social care, the voluntary and community sector, parents, carers and young people.

You are invited to join a consultation session to talk about the new service and have a say in what it looks and feels like. These sessions are open to all, including young people, professionals, parents and
carers. They are an important opportunity to listen to a presentation by James Fortune, Wiltshire’s Lead Commissioner for children and young people’s mental health, and to share your views which will help shape the new service and improve the lives of children and young people who are experiencing mental health problems.

Consultation sessions are being run in three areas. Our nearest is in Chippenham on the 9th May 2017 at Abbeyfield School, Chippenham, SN153XB.

They are also being held at Sarum Academy, Salisbury on the 25th April as well as Rowdeford School, Devizes on the 2nd May. All sessions are from 4 – 6pm and open to everybody.
